? that is it for "the five." thank you for watching. see you here tomorrow. ♪ ♪ >> bret: is president obama really ready to go to war over iran's nuclear program? one israeli leader says the u.s. is not chicken. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. from the israeli government perspective, a country living with the threat of a nuclear iran possibly. president obama said the right things. during his visit about making sure iran does not get a nuclear weapon. at least one israeli leader is convinced if push comes to shove and military action is needed, the u.s. will be right alongside israel. amid the talk of war, though, the president is also pushing for peace between israelis and palestinians. that effort take a different tone on a specific issue today. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and reports from jerusalem. >> president obama spent a second day in jerusalem showing he is mending fences with israeli leaders to get upclose look at the dead sea scrolls and later trying to go around the leaders to appeal to the young people of

lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this is a noncontroversial bill. it would be surprising to me if democrats felt concerned or nervous about voting for it and i think harry reid recognized that and that's why he's going forward with this in the baseline bill. >> according to "the washington post," these individual gun safety measures have overwhelming support with the public. you know, they have 6 in 10 people, 57% support a been on assault weapons, a majority, obviously. 82% think illegal sales should constitute a crime and 91% support background checks at

blitzer in "the situation room." >>> jake, thanks very much. happening now president obama calls iran a great civilization. so what's behind this renewed outreach even in the face of a potential nuclear threat? vice president joe biden spends one night in paris. the hotel bill comes to more than half a million dollars for him and his entire delegation. we're getting an extremely rare glimpse at how much it costs when a vice president of the united states travels. and a newborn baby found in a new york city subway, adopted by the man who found him. you'll find out how extraordinary this story really is and how it's playing out. >>> i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> president obama is kicking off the next leg of his trip to the middle east with what might seem to be a change at least in tune a little bit as far as iran is concerned. at a news conference in amman, jordan the president made a staunch plea for a peaceful solution in the face of growing nuclear concerns. >> if, in fact, what the supreme leader has said is the case, which is that developing a nuclear weap
. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> wel

with obama as president and the democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. in other words, we're now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget which for 1418 days, four years, they never wrote a budget. how do you campaign against democrats in the senate if they don't even write down what they're for? so there are differences in how you structure. i think there's a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin who made dramatic changes on the cost of government, government-run pensions, the unionized government work force and bobby jindal with school choice. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines
simpson-bowles, and they could never openly clear for obama care or the ryan budget. and the debt also -- >> hopes for a grand bargain were dashed. >> yes, the same thing, it is unexamined on some level. secondarily, if you say deficit reduction, the partisan are leeched out. we are talking about whether it will work to balance the budget. if along the way 35 million become uninsured, that's sad but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effe
a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 m
. >> remember no drama obama? if only. now it's all drama obama. we don't have leadership coming out of washington. we have reality television. >> and i guess she should know. having sold her entire family, not for 30 pieces of silver, but for $250,000 per episode on her reality tv series called "sarah palin's alaska." >> we're snagged. i'm thinking we're going to be stuck there. the anchor is dropped. and a bear's coming toward us. i'm looking around to todd going, uh, are you feeling what i'm feeling, todd? >> if hypocrisy were miss palin's only crime, then she wouldn't be out of the ordinary. but on saturday, she went back to the sewer of racist smears as she ranted on about gun control. >> more background checks. dandy idea, mr. president. should have started with yours. >> sarah palin is morally bankrupt and politically backward. she's not a hockey mom. she's the mother of hypocrisy. and until the republican party acknowledges that she's no longer an asset, but a real liability, then any rebranding of the gop is probably bound for a train to nowhere. thank you so much for watchi

obama made a big announcement. nominating justice department lawyer tom perez to be the next labor secretary. >> like so many americans, tom knows what it's like to climb the ladder of opportunity. his story reminds us of this country's promise. that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, what your last name is, you can make it if you try. and tom's made protecting that promise for everybody the cause of his life. >> i was at the white house today for the big announcement, which sparked ugly reactions from the right. >> this guy's name is tom perez, he may as well be hugo chavez. that is not an exaggeration. imagine what would happen if bush turned around and nominated the grand kliegle of the ku klux klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. that is exactly what's happened here. >> that's incredibly offensive. and now we're hearing gop senators vowing to block the perez nomination. why? because perez is a champion for voting and minority rights? it was his office that fought to block vote are i.d.

with the latest crack about the need to check president obama's background? priebus talks about getting the true nature of the party out to the public. he says it's been a communications problem. wasn't the most excellent communication of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the "grio," joy reid. governor rendell, i read what you had to say about this. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new pr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of a

: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're

immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things which may be important but sound a bit frivolous to people reading it. jon: why is that important? >> well i think it is not everyone watches fox news. not everyone watches, the evening news at night. some people read entertainment weekly and don't actually get serious hard news. some way to reach out into the culture and to the people who are not watching cable news 24 hours a day. maybe go on some of these shows. as you know a lot of youth watch "the daily show" and "the colbert report." that may be a way to reach out to them. i think that is the reasoning behind it. whether that is true or not, who knows. jon: but at th

-- good morning. >> quite a comment from a vice president working for president obama who has been on the endless charm offensive over the past several weeks. suggests to me the charm offensive may have been more than a pr stunt than anything else. they weren't actually trying to get a deal, if they thought they couldn't, this is something they were doing for the media. bill: he said a lot actually based on this account. hard to identify who the party is. then he said this. this is the first time i've heard it, if you heard it, tell me. there were five occasions which house leaders negotiated with him, only to call hours or days later say what we agreed to joe, we can not do. have you heard that before? >> no, i hadn't and jumped out at me. one of the things we heard going back to the debt ceiling negotiations in the summer of 2011, john boehner saying in effect the president played loosesy and -- lucy and yanked football and was not keeping his word on obligations he said he would undertake. i wonder if joe biden going back to offer a at this time for at that time argument? would

candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle
unexpected thing of all this man obama. he descended from a distant star to blind the masses with his light and it was greater than hers so once again, hillary had to wait. will she go for it again or is it her fate to fade into the pages of missed opportunity, bad timing and wrbroken promises? what do you think, reverend sharpton? >> she has to be thinking this is something i've dreamed of to be the first woman president and has to be my shot, but she also has to say look what happened last time. something totally unseen, barack obama came about. can that happen again? she also has to look at what does biden do. most people feel he won't run if she does. you don't know. what about andrew cuomo do? dan can say many of her people that would do the work, you are talking about where the players 20 years ago during the clinton years you have eight years of obama, new leadership around the country that don't have the same affection for the clintons that her school or her age class does, how does she get them enthusiastic enough to face a republican opponent if they can come up with a formidable
and balances within a decade. president obama and the congressional democrats say that they want to get america back to work and support a balanced approach to our fiscal problems. but they also support record deficits and budgets that never, ever balance. instead of government living within its means, the democrats' budgets raise taxes to fuel more spending and in turn millions of americans remain out of work. the only place that these failed policies will lead is to higher unemployment, depressed wages and a crushing debt crisis. the majority of americans are not satisfied with the current state of our economy and they're not hopeful about the future. and who can plame them? i believe the american people -- blame them? i believe the american people deserve more than the status quo and i believe the american people deserve leaders here in washington who are honest with themselves and their constituents about the challenges facing our nation and what it's going to take to get our nation back on track. 30 seconds? mr. ryan: another 30 seconds. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for an addit

this country we had a vigorous debate. president obama laid out his vision of how we deal with some of our big challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those ar
